SMR Podcast

This week I joined Robb Dunewood and Chris Ashley on the SMR Podcast. As always we had a complete blast. If you haven’t ever heard that show before, it’s these two guys along with Rod Simmons where they talk tech, with gaming, sports, movies and even social issues sprinkled throughout. They had me on to talk about the new iPads coming out and more, but I started out by telling a story about boxer Sugar Shane Mosely! You can find the show at SMRpodcast #407: Surface or iPad with Allison Sheridan

Chit Chat Across the Pond

In this week’s Programming By Stealth, Bart Busschots teaches us the last two concepts in Mustache, one of which is a real head bender and for me at least, the second was almost as hard. The first is how you can add an optional third argument to a Mustache view which is actually a function within a function. It’s a very meta concept. The second is the use of Mustache Partials which are templates within templates. I expect you’ll follow along faster than I did but I think I got there in the end!
